Health and Social Care Integration

The shape of Scottish society is changing - people are living longer and leading healthier lifestyles. So as the needs of our society change so too must the nature and form of our public services.

New legislation, in the form of the Public Bodies (Joint Working) (Scotland) Act 2014 came into force on 1 April 2014. The Act requires Health Boards and Local Authorities to integrate their health and social care services.

In April 2016, the integration of health and social care went live in South Lanarkshire.  To learn more about integration in South Lanarkshire please visit the new South Lanarkshire Health and Social Care Partnership website.

You can also download a copy of the Strategic Commissioning Plan and other key documents.
